New York Red Bulls Captain Dax McCarty Hits out at MLS Disciplinary Committee

DC United midfielder Perry Kitchen appears to have escaped suspension for his stamp on New York Red Bulls right-back Chris Duvall in yet another perplexing decision from the MLS Disciplinary Committee.  DC beat writer Pablo Maurer was among the first to point out that Kitchen has escaped any repercussion for his seemingly blatant act of foul play.  I'm told that Perry Kitchen has escaped any disciplinary action (for now) for his alleged stomp on Sunday vs #RBNY.

Toronto vs. Tottenham Hotspur: 6 Things We Learned from Spurs’ Friendly Win

Tottenham won the second match of their pre-season tour of North America 3-2, with Andros Townsend scoring the winning goal in the 85th minute.  Erik Lamela was the star for Spurs, scoring twice in the opening period. Spurs lined up with a fluid line of three (Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Aaron Lennon) behind Roberto Soldado and were entertaining and efficient as they cruised to a 2-0 half-time lead.   Mauricio Pochettino's system looks to be taking shape as Ben Davies slipped comfortably into the starting line-up.  Spurs were a little ragged after 10 half-time changes, and Toronto drew level at 2-2 before Townsend's late winner.   Begin Slideshow
